Artist: Julieanne Ngwarraye Morton
First Nations woman Julieanne Ngwarraye Morton is the artist behind the captivating Desert Flower print. Julieanne lives and paints on Alyawarr country in the Northern Territory. Her Grandfather’s country is Antarrengeny and her Grandmother’s mother’s country is Aherrenge. She is a member of the Artists of Ampilatwatja, an Indigenous owned art centre near Alice Springs.
The Desert Flower artwork depicts plants, seeds, flowers, hills and rocks. While many First Nations artists paint Dreaming stories, the Artists of Ampilatwatja have made a conscious decision not to paint them, and instead their paintings portray the landscape, native plants and wildlife. Most of the artists paint Arreth which translates to 'strong bush medicine'.
Julieanne receives royalties for every Desert Flower tee sold. Nancybird operate under licensing contracts with artists and ensure they are paid fairly for the use of their work. Every single t-shirt generates income for the artist.
Artist: Emily Wright
Nancybird founder Emily Wright is an artist in her own right! Emily created the River Collection, inspired by her recent trip to the Murray on the lands of the Wadi Wadi, Wamba Wamba and Barapa Barapa people.
"Our natural surroundings have always been a central part of the Nancybird aesthetic, reflecting the natural world and, in particular, drawing on an Australian perspective – our unique flora and the colours of the landscape. While some of our influences may come from overseas, we always try to bring them into an Australian context – what we have here is rich and diverse". - Emily
